Alright guys will an 8qt extra deep straight sides moroso bbc oil pan fit in a 80 camaro.
Or will i have a ground clearance issue.
Also is anyone running a kickout pan with a big block?
Any header clearance issues?
I have a brand new bbc mk4 chrome pan and I,m afraid to use it want to get a high capacity pan.
thanks in advance.
Go big or go home!

I have a Milodon kick out pan on a 70 with a 461BBC. No clearance issues. I use a long oil filter, but can't fill it completely before installing, as I have to tilt it and get it aeound the header collector, most of the oil leaks out before I get it straight again and started on the threads.

With a short filter it's no problem but like Wayne said a long one is tight.If the engine is cold I put a piece of plastic under the filter to keep all the oil from going on my headers when I take the old one off.
It's a 6 quart Brandon.
